Check out a Civil War garden. The public is invited to the grand opening of The Institute’s Civil War era garden on Saturday, May 21, at 1 p.m. at the garden site near the Monterey Pass Battlefield Museum near Blue Ridge Summit. The garden will be an educational tool for area school children and for visitors to Monterey Pass Battlefield Museum. The 25-by-28-foot garden is enclosed by an historically-accurate wooden fence, constructed with reproduction 19th-century-style nails. With six raised beds and one 24-foot-long bed, the plantings will change from year to year, always with an eye to reflecting period gardens. The event will feature a brief program with remarks, garden activity for children, self-guided garden tours, and light refreshments. Admission is free.
